The computer that saved the Soldier’s back, and the helmet that saved his life
Spc. Nicolas Laboy, U.S. Army Reserve information technology specialist for the 416th Theater Engineer Command, poses in his wheelchair three months after a motorcycle accident at his house in Bolingbrook, Ill., Sept. 29, next to the downstairs living room that has been turned into his bedroom. Laboy is expected to walk again after three more months of physical therapy. During his accident, Laboy broke his right leg, received a third-degree burn in his left thigh, severed his kidney and liver, fractured his lower spine and his right shoulder, and suffered internal bleeding in his brain.
